SOURCE: I have a 1999 VW Beetle 2:0L engine. Regularly

Hello! There is a device called the MAP sensor. It is located after the air filter, and before the intake. A 3" to 4" plastic tube with a wire connector coming out of it's side; Connected with a hose in and hose out that connects to the intake. This is the culprit 90% of the time. Auto part stores sell it for around $80-$90. Check both hose for cuts or holes which allow dirt to enter after the air filter. The MAP regulates fuel flow. Radio Shack has a product called "Deox It. The catalog # is 64-4338 and it is used to clean electrical devices. Cost is around $15. Try cleaning it first and see if your trouble clears.

SOURCE: 1999 VW Beetle starts and instantly stalls

You don't have the proper key. The flip key assembly has a chip in it that lets the car keep running. Use old key assembly. To test put the old ket fob next to the ignition switch and see if it keeps running,

May have radiator fluid in oil 2001 vw beetle

An oil leak mixing with coolant is an internal leak, which is usually the result of a faulty or damaged head gasket, or cracked head. This is a major repair job, because the entire top of the engine has to be removed to do the repair. You can't see the leak because it's inside the engine, not outside of it. White smoke (steam) should be coming out of the exhaust pipe if this is true.

My 1999 vw beetle was ticking like oil was low, when i opened the cap there was milky what stuff around cap and top of oil spout .what is that stuff and how do i fix it

You have antifreeze in your oil. It could be a head gasket, but that should make the engine misfire badly. The most likely cause is a leaking intake manifold gasket. I t is imperative that you not drive the car until you have it repaired. The contaminated oil will eventually cause engine failure.

What type of antifreeze do i use in my 2000 VW new beetle

Volkswagon sells their own antifreeze for use in the New Beetles. It's an extended life antifreeze, but may be slightly modified from the commonly available extended life antifreeze available in your auto parts store. You can always ask the counter rep at Autozone or O'Riely's if they would recdommend the standard extended life antifreeze.

My 1999 VW Beetle losses antifreeze.

You will need to look all over the engine with a good light. If it is leaking somewhere, look for pinkish residue. Since your antifreeze is pink, it will leave behind this color. When you find it, that will be the source of your leak. It is probably small right now and evaporating before it hits the ground is why you don't see it.
